You can tell a lot about a person by how well their friends pay their bills.
So, why not judge a presidential candidate the same way?
While not the most obvious indicator, a person's credit score is already used by lenders to decide which applicants have their finances in order. Looking at this three-digit number, voters may gain a sense of the financial savvy of individuals attracted to a candidate. At least this is the logic behind a WalletHub survey which did just that.
According to the survey, Hillary Clinton's supporters had the worst credit scores. Almost 26 percent of Clinton's supporters had bad credit scores (defined as 620 or less on a scale that tops out at 850), followed by supporters of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, at 22 percent and 20 percent, respectively.
"Credit scores are all encompassing," said Jill Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for WalletHub. "They can be looked at as a basis of comparison in terms of seeing where you fit in with other voters."
Credit scores can also be a proxy for age and income level of a voter, she added. Higher credit scores skew to an older demographic since a person with brand-new credit will not have as good a score as someone who has had a mortgage for more than 20 years.
The survey found when it comes to supporters with the best credit score John Kasich's are in first place. Nearly 60 percent of his supporters have excellent scores, with Marco Rubio's supporters coming in a close second at 58 percent with sterling credit.
The survey was conducted between March 9 and March 13 using a nationally representative online panel of 765 participants.
